Making a planned gift offers the opportunity to give back to yourself, your family and your community. With planned giving, you can achieve personal and financial goals while leaving a legacy that will benefit the credit union industry for generations to come. A planned, or legacy, gift is a gift of capital which is not usually made from your current income.  Planned gifts can be given immediately (such as a gift of stock or real property) or deferred (such as a bequest or life insurance policy.)

We would be happy to discuss your planned giving options. We strongly encourage you to contact your attorney or financial advisor to obtain information about how different gifts will affect your specific financial situation.  There are many ways to leave a legacy:

  • Bequests through your will: Name the Heartland Credit Union Charitable Foundation (HCUCF) in your will in the form of a stated dollar amount, specific property or a percentage of your estate.
  • Charitable Gift Annuities: Transfer assets to HCUCF through a contractual agreement, in exchange for an annual premium paid to you by HCUCF.
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts: Place assets in a trust from which earnings are paid as income to you and your beneficiaries. Upon the death of the last beneficiary, the principal will be given to HCUCF.
  • Charitable Lead Trusts: Place assets in a trust from which earnings flow to HCUCF for a stated number of years.  After that period, the assets in the trust will be distributed to your beneficiaries.
  • Insurance Policies: Name HCUCF as the beneficiary of all or a portion of your life insurance.
  • Retirement Plan: Name HCUCF as the beneficiary of all or a portion of your retirement plans.


If you are interested in learning more about the many planning giving tools available for donors, establishing estate gifts or would like to make a gift of stock or other gift, please contact Andrea Robinson, HCUCF Executive Director, or 913-297-2474.
